SRM - make two lots and quickly seal the envelope while you're stuffing your face with the first one.
I think we also like champagne.
GOOD IDEA re Outlook reminders for entries. I'm trying to enter the Berlin half right now, but can't as my credit card, corporate credit card and bank card all expire within three months of the event, which means you can't use them!!
Kate and SRM you should be so lucky! Totes agreed re time and financial investment. Mine has a recurring knee injury so has sworn off running almost completely. It's a bit sad. I'm aiming to just enter loads of races and then announce them a week beforehand...!
